NVIDIA’s AI-Powered Avatar Cloud Engine Brings Natural Language Conversations to Games
NVIDIA, renowned for its cutting-edge graphics and AI technology, has revealed an innovative solution called Avatar Cloud Engine (ACE) that aims to revolutionize gaming interactions. During the generative AI keynote at Computex 2023, the company showcased a demo named Kairos, which showcased the potential of ACE by allowing gamers to engage in natural conversations with non-playable characters (NPCs) and receive contextually appropriate responses.
The demo presented a playable character conversing with an NPC named Jin in a dystopian-themed Ramen shop. In the demo, the player initiated the conversation by asking, “Hey Jin, how are you?” Jin responded, “Unfortunately, not so good,” expressing concern about the increasing crime in the area and how the ramen shop had suffered as a result.
While the dialogue in the demo may have felt somewhat scripted and lacking natural flow, the purpose was to illustrate the concept of using voice input to interact with NPCs and receive relevant responses, thus enhancing the overall gaming experience.
